Why should I support CHUO?
CHUO is the Ottawa-Gatineau region’s only bilingual, community radio station. CHUO provides high-quality radio programming that speaks to the diversity, intelligence and rich social context of its audience.
CHUO is more than just entertainment; it’s a service that we, as a non-profit organization, provide at no cost. We offer under-represented and often ignored factions of society the opportunity to be heard and listened to. CHUO is about social equity and inclusiveness often lacking in mainstream media.
CHUO aims to provide the community with the equipment, skills and resources to create and produce radio programming. We rely on the community’s generosity do so, and are reaching out for your pledge. Your support allows CHUO to continue exposing the region’s radio listeners to the music commercial radio just doesn’t play and giving a voice to cultural and community groups within the National Capital Region.
FUNDING DRIVE 2013
CHUO 89.1FM’s 2013 Funding Drive!
We need your support!
From March 8th to March 24th 2013, CHUO will be reaching out to our listeners and asking for their support. Our goal this year is 50,000$.
Why should I donate?
Aside from volunteering at the station or from calling the on-air studio, Funding Drive is perhaps the best way for listeners to become part of CHUO. It is active community outreach. This activity is designed to unite all members of the station in the common goal of acquiring funds to keep the station in operation. CHUO is a non-profit organization. It is, however, important to recognize that although we are not here to make money, we do need a certain amount of money to continue broadcasting quality radio. The actual costs of running and maintaining a radio station are quite phenomenal.
A $25 donation will get you a FRIEND OF CHUO card. CLICK HERE for more information including the 50 businesses in Ottawa/Gatineau that will give you discounts all year round for supporting CHUO!
